About 75 for the cutoff (sleeveless) T-shirts. Has to be at least in the mid-80s before I'll start sporting the wifebeaters.

I have never casually worn sleeveless clothing in my life and I don't plan on it. I have worn Triathlon race suits, but not to just sit around the house.



I don't see the advantage vs a T-shirt.

Its a lot more comfortable in bed . I hate T shirt sleeves bunching up at the shoulders.

If you have got the arms there is nothing wrong. Also, hairy pits are not unhygienic. Dirty ones are, and I can avoid that by taking a good shower.

Oh, I don't know. My Nike racing suit was quite comfortable when driving through southeastern California, Arizona and New Mexico on a string of 110+ degree days 3-4 Julys ago. Was en route to Omaha on business and decided to go the scenic route, and the car's air conditioner died before I got out of the Silicon Valley. Slip a pair of jeans over if you need to get out and you'll certainly look better than some of the lifeforms down there (CA). You do what you have to do to survive.

Though under normal circumstances I usually don't wear one if I plan to venture very far from the swimming pool.

Anywhere else is just gross.
I would disagree big time. I love seeing a guy in a nice sleeveless button-down shirt with a pair of nice slacks. I go sleeveless in public all the time in a bright-colored sleeveless polo shirt tucked into sone very colorful skinny pants, or a sexy, manly, sleeveless western shirt with contrasting piping and a colorful yolk. I tend to get noticed quite a bit by women, who tend to smile and laugh when they see me wearing such colorful sleeveless outfits. Going sleeveless is all about showing my nice, smooth, freckly shoulders in public in a very brave, bold, and daring style!

I would rarely if ever go full-on sleeveless in an office setting even here inland in SoCal, where it gets above 95 and often, above 100 for months at a time. I just don't think it's appropriate.

As for other settings: any short- or no-sleeved option is one I'd do when, well, it's warm enough (to me) to do it. I tend to be chillier than most people around me. So I don't have fashion dictate this for me, but how I actually feel. If I'm chilly, I don't do tank tops even if every single woman around me has a tank top on.

With that said, I'm no fashion maven, so...maybe don't listen to me.
